I think I know what your problem is, your script is probably using the
PATH_INFO stuff, which wasn't supported in previous release of
Jigsaw. Now, if you are a w3c member, you should be able to get the
new release from:"

http://www.w3.org/member/WWW/Jigsaw

page. This include fixes (numerous fixes) to CgiResource.

I know, we are having trouble with our mailing lists, I am looking
after that...
